Another Fun "Field Trip"

We recently scheduled a “loooooong-ago-intended” trip to see Kayli’s cousin Matt, at K State. Marion and I started talking about doing this when Matt enrolled as a Freshman and now he is a Senior! Oh, well, better late than never. So, Marion, Jake, Nick, Kayli, and I piled into Marion’s car and headed for Manhattan last Saturday, for an overnight stay. We did SO much in such a short period of time and a great time was had by all! We…

...kept the kids entertained with magical electronic devices

...went to a really cool "Bug Museum"!
While at the museum, Kayli was "glued" to the large container that had a huge green snake eating a rat! I couldn't distract her and didn't really want to watch it myself and really can't even look at this picture without breaking out in hives, but I guess it's all part of the "cycle of life" lesson. When the snake had finally finished swallowing, and the mouse was gone from view, I heard Kayli talking to the snake with her hands on her hips, saying "Well, are you happy now?" I didn't happen to hear the snakes response!



In case you couldn't tell, this is a beehive with ongoing activity to watch...
Here we are at Matt's fraternity house...


Here we are checking out Matt's dorm room. Of course the kids had to "practice" climbing up into the bunk bed!

Kayli had some fun in the frat basement, stomping on beer cans!

We went to the Mall for a little shopping and of course Kayli couldn't pass up a Merry-Go-Round ride!

We did a little swimming at the hotel...
Matt read a bedtime story to the kids, even though nobody was ready for bed!
The kids played a rousing game of "Hide and Seek" that had Kayli laughing til she couldn't stand up!


Check out the "Hide and Seek" Video below to hear how much fun they were having! Notice Aunt Marion catching some winks in the middle of all this chaos.

We went to a beautiful rose garden...


It was quite chilly but we still played at the park...
Then we drove to this cool "Wizard of Oz" Museum...







Grabbed some lunch on our way out of town...Kayli managed to get a few bites in before dropping in her tracks...
